ectuohy27 (795) - ESTONIA - JUN 16, 2015
A rather meh macro dark beer from SK. Aroma is hoppy and off-putting...taste is watery and bland, leading to a sedimentary, bitter finish. No need to seek this one out

Bottle. Dark amber body with creamy tan head. Aroma has light caramel notes, hay, malty. Taste has medium caramel profile with earthy bitterness, little astringent after taste. Body is full, high carbonation. Actually, this is pretty good for the origin.

flemmingwillum (1108) - Nysted, DENMARK - MAY 30, 2014
Rating #957, flaske fra Slovakiet. Nćsten sort řl med tćt, holdbart, brunt skum. Duft af ristet malt, sřd lakrids og rřdvin. Virkelig lćkkert! Smagen er mere afdćmpet med en del ristet malt, karamel, mřrk chokolade og en kraftig humlebitter afslutning. Meget třr hele vejen, som det sig hřr og břr for denne řltype, men aldrig kedelig. Blřd i munden, dog en lille smule for tynd. Absolut en af bedre řl inden for denne řltype.
